Brigadier General Robert L. Cardenas, USAF (Ret) served many distinguished successful tours during his 34 years of active United States Air Force service. Early in his career he was shot down over Europe while flying a B-24 Bomber during World War II. He successfully evaded and escaped to Switzerland and thence to France prior to D Day from whence he was flown to England and returned to the United States. Following these harrowing events, he reported to the Flight Test Division at Wright-Patterson AFB for training as an Army Air Corps Test Pilot. General Cardenas’ service with the Special Operations community began in early 1962. He led a joint Task Force of Air Force Special Air Warfare and US Army Special Forces to Kashmir, India for the purpose of evaluating and improving high altitude resupply drops to the Indian Army in the Himalayan Mountains. Later in 1968, General Cardenas was selected to command the Special Air Warfare Center at Eglin AFB, Florida. During his tenure and through his masterful leadership, the Special Warfare Center had its greatest growth in history, expanding to two Special Operations Wings, which were comprised of 628 aircraft of 16 varieties. His broad vision and operational expertise also resulted in the activation of two tactical squadrons, a Combat Control Squadron and the detailed planning for the formation of four Special Operations Fighter Squadrons. As a tribute to the men and women serving in Special Operations, he created the “Air Commando Hall of Fame” which stands as a living monument to the achievements of those selected for enshrinement. A Warrior without peer, General Cardenas truly embodies the Air Commando spirit of “Any Time Any Place.”
